Deutschland 1944: Am 20. Juli versucht eine Handvoll deutscher Offiziere, Hitler durch einen Staatsstreich zu beseitigen und somit Deutschland vom Joch des Nationalsozialismus zu befreien. Oberst Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg und sein Adjutant Werner von Haeften zünden eine Bombe in der "Wolfsschanze", Hitlers Hauptquartier. Der Führer wird durch die Wucht der Explosion verletzt. Seine Trommelfelle sind geplatzt, er trägt Prellungen und leichte Verbrennungen davon. Vier seiner Männer sterben. Der schwere Eichentisch, auf dem die Lagebesprechung noch wenige Sekunden zuvor stattgefunden hatte, rettet Adolf Hitler das Leben. Der zweite Teil des Staatsreiches, die Operation "Walküre", die die Institutionen der NS-Diktatur mit Hilfe der Wehrmacht nach und nach ausschalten soll, wird brutal von Hitler niedergeschlagen. Mit unvorstellbarer Grausamkeit übt das nationalsozialistische Regime Vergeltung an den Verschwörern und Widerständlern um General Ludwig Beck, Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg, Werner von Haeften, Albrecht Ritter Mertz von Quirnheim und Friedrich Obricht. Hitler hingegen wird vom deutschen Volk, als von der Vorhersehung begünstigt, zur Kultfigur erhoben. (Quelle: Umschlag)
